Hello, I develop sites and leave a modest reference in the basement(which no advertising). Designed about the protection that it was impossible to remove it or at least make it difficult. so far only came up to insert an ajax request to the file with the link in some sort of scripts most of the developed site. This ajax just adds to the footer the link. Are there any known solutions or ideas?
The only appropriate option - a clause in the contract (as does for example FATS).
If a freelancer - you can try an oral agreement (but it is clear that the client may at any time change your mind - and it is his right).
And for all the antics with hidden functionality it is necessary to beat off hands.

To negotiate without a paper contract - simple:
The format is simple: observe the conditions and earn privileges.
If the link is installed (and during the term will be on site at the agreed place in the agreed form), then You give free TP to correct bugs on time of year and give a percentage discount for revision.
Then sense to remove the link from the Client will not, because it will give him the privileges and bonuses.
And You can monitor its existence and if it will be removed immediately, and then, before you call, will return and will immediately appeal to You - to report any failure to comply with conditions and to deny, free TP (+ to cancel the discount on improvements).

if you want to figure out how to remove unnecessary link. and the residue will remain.
it is better to negotiate properly.
To convey to the customer that your signature - an analogue of the signature Rembrandt, which will help others, his colleagues, the choice of the contractor.
JS, certainly interesting, but it will help to monitor the health of the site, taken on a regular maintenance or monitoring.
In my practice was when the client changed direction and they decided to ask for modifications to the competitors. At some point, my signature was gone, I called the competitors - the signature back and put his next to mine.
Subsequently, the site changed dramatically. Both externally and internally. Then I called the competitors a second time and they removed my signature, and I removed this website from the portfolio.
The best protection is to work so that customers can brag, "look who's site I developed!" :)

Let's start from afar.
By what right do You want to leave on the website which You developed for a Client, my reference?
You should be good to request permission to install links if permission is obtained, then at least for a while You will have a reference to itself.
If You are doing for a client, it is his, not Yours, and credit for good, to leave there You are not eligible.
And now, based on the above, think about how to defend against negligent webmasters who wants to leave a reference :) Example with windshield, just a theme :)

Che remembered when a video of the celebrations engaged, some colleges took the money for the survey, the installation and the almost nail DVDs scratched to the customer they are not replicated, because only agreed, for example, 2 copies... ))
If in fact, copyright is the eternal theme of artisans ) You, as an idea generator. can claim copyright on the idea (unique design, clever code that never was used), but if you are to implement use handy tools that belong to other people (paying working hours, investment here is also included), they come to you in entitlements. And here it is, sorry, move - share 50/50. And your co-author has the full right to refuse to post information about you on their half (on the finished product because that's what he ordered).
Therefore, to properly advise you. You need to negotiate with his co-author, to motivate him, so he doesn't have the desire to remove your link. The same technical support and refinement of your unique code, for which another developer to request a fabulous sum, because a week will disassemble before something is implemented.
And super-duper tools to protect their links do not exist, even if you set twenty-five times encrypted code to the communication client site. From personal experience I can say that and not as the authorship had to pick out, but it is in the past... :)
